Reebok’s Courting Greatness Campaign

Reebok’s “Courting Greatness” AR Tool, Campaign Empowers Players to Create Basketball Courts Anywhere

Local artist installations offer creative inspiration, tipped off in NYC by New York Sunshine Install Team for Question Mid “Iverson Four”

Today, Reebok officially launches “Courting Greatness,” its FW21 basketball campaign empowering youth to create playable basketball spaces where they may not exist. Central to the campaign is a digital tool that utilizes augmented reality to help players map out court features anywhere – on walls, fences, parking lots and alleyways. Throughout the season, to inspire creativity and build awareness around the tool, Reebok will work with local artists in major cities to construct playable basketball art installations, with the first coming from NYC creative collective New York Sunshine Install Team that will honor the upcoming Question Mid “Iverson Four”.

Carrying forward themes from Reebok’s latest film, CrateMaster, which shines light on the grit and creativity of inner city youth, as well as on accessibility issues in urban areas, “Courting Greatness” celebrates players on a local level. Using existing camera and measurement features in mobile phones, the “Courting Greatness” digital tool enables users to map out the exact (or rough) dimensions of a court, be it a free throw line, 10-foot hoop, three-point line or key.

“For kids and teens living in the city, basketball is the pre-eminent sport, but finding space to play can be especially challenging,” said Inga Stenta, Head of U.S. Marketing for Reebok. “We are continuously inspired by athletes who reimagine competition and find alternative ways to play. ‘Courting Greatness’ will help create access for these kids – and players of all levels and walks – whether they have a court or not.”

Demonstrating the tool’s creative potential and how a makeshift court may come to life, Reebok partnered with New York Sunshine Install Team, a contemporary art and fashion collective based in NYC, to create a court using raw, industrial materials, to initiate the campaign. The temporary installation is located at 36 Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn. Local artists in LA, Philly and Atlanta will then be tapped for subsequent installations throughout the FW21 season, each uniquely bringing to life forthcoming Reebok basketball product releases.

Coinciding with the launch of “Courting Greatness” and this year’s summer games, Reebok is set to release its Question Mid “Iverson Four” sneaker inspired by the ’04 national team uniforms worn in Greece, where A.I. adorned jersey number “4”.

Hoopers can visit HERE today to access the augmented reality tool and get to work. The Question Mid “Iverson Four” is available globally in adult and kids unisex sizing from Foot Locker, Finish Line, Champs Sports and Reebok’s website, among other select retailers, beginning July 31.

Things You Say presents Expression

Things You Say invites you to join us for a bi-weekly evening of disco and house music at “Things You Say presents Expression.” This performance will debut Thursday, July 15th at The Queensberry in Los Angeles. The free event intends to bring LA’s music community together to celebrate local artists.

“Things You Say presents Expression” is a space of acceptance, camaraderie and liberation. Things You Say presents Expression promotes an open-door policy that celebrates inclusion, intersectionality, and the rich traditions of club culture. In this way, Things You Say provides a unique space that is the “Expression” platform.

“Things You Say presents Expression” hosts artists, musicians and tastemakers from around the world to share their perspective and to explore love with positivity through movement in an embellished multi-sensory environment.

On their Spotify account, Things You Say describes their music as such:

“We are Things You Say. We come from club culture, it’s embedded in us. It’s where we met. It’s where we found ourselves and each other. We want to make you dance. Despite our name, we hope that you’ll say less and dance more.”

The group’s most recent release in collaboration with Arama, “Angel,” celebrates the same feel-good, groovy attitude of club culture. The track illustrates feeling “weightless” while spending time with a lover. Things You Say melodically sings:

“All I wanna do is see the world with you/ the stars/ the moon/ floating with you./ it’s you, I think I found an angel.”

Things You Say has just released a remix for Tiana Major9 out now on Motown listen here. Other remixes from the band features Grimes’ “Miss Anthropocene (Rave Edition.)” The band has 18,550 monthly listeners, the majority of which are based in London, Los Angeles, and New York City. As Things You Say’s influence continues to grow, they are surely a musical group to watch!

Listen to Things You Say on Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud.

“Things You Say presents Expression” will take place from 9pm-2am at 819 S. Flower Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
